As the coronavirus continues to spread globally, with cases emerging in both China and the United States, the Israeli government is taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of its citizens. In response to the request of Minister of Health Aryeh Deri, Minister of Transportation Brigadier General Miri Regev and CEO of the Airports Authority and CEO of NTABG, Prof. Salman Zarka, have agreed to establish a voluntary testing station in Israel.

Starting January 11, 2023, returnees from abroad will have the opportunity to receive free, voluntary testing upon arrival in Israel, particularly those coming from China. This is in line with similar measures being taken in countries such as the United States, Australia, France, Great Britain, Spain, and more.

It’s important to note that the operation and management of the testing station will be fully the responsibility of the Ministry of Health, and not the Airports Authority. By implementing this measure, the government is working to protect the health and well-being of all citizens, and prevent the further spread of the virus.
